The National Flood Forum exists to support individuals and communities at risk of flooding and have been doing this across the country since 2002.
As an independent charity we take the time to listen to the challenges individuals and communities face. Our priority is to enable people to take control of their own flooding concerns.
We do this by:
- Helping people to recover after they have been flooded.
- Supporting and listening to communities so they feel empowered to manage their flood risk.
- Representing people at risk of flooding to make sure the authorities and government develop a community perspective.
Recovery Services: Specialist flood recovery services and support.
Information & Advice: Hosting flood information advice services to help people with their problems and raise awareness.
Professional Training: Professional training for local authorities, agencies, and the voluntary sector to ensure they are prepared to respond to the effect of flooding and its impact on communitiies.
Supporting Communities: People bring local knowledge about their flood risk, as well as skills and ideas to partnership working. We help to unblock this by supporting community action.
